ONC Information Blocking Questions

As part of the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) and the Quality Payment Program final rule there were requirements that participants in both the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs show that they have not knowingly and willfully limited or restricted the compatibility or interoperability of their certified electronic health record (EHR) technology. These questions are required for providers to show they are meeting this requirement by attesting to three statements about how they implement and use certified EHR technology (CEHRT). Together, these three statements are referred to as the "Prevention of Information Blocking Attestation." Providers should carefully read each question and answer appropriately. For more information on the questions, refer to the CMS Prevention of Information Blocking Attestation Fact Sheet.
